I was having a chat with a man in his mid 40's yesterday.
His father died about 6 months ago in a care home and he had been living in the same house as his father.
Both he and his father are widowed and as it happens he has 2 daughters like me.
When my mother passed away in a hospice we were offered the support of Bereavement Councillors etc but my father and myself only spoke to them once as we had the support of a large wider family.
This gent said he has the support of his daughters and some family but he said he has never been offered any support outside the family.
Is any such support available in the Birmingham area and should he have been offered support through the nursing home?.
When a parent and child is living together the death can have almost the same effect as losing a spouse.
